FYI, a few motors use the actual magnet wire itself as the lead out wire for the motor. Motors such as the Hacker line use many strands of this stuff. Problem is, this magnet wire is coated with a very thin very difficult to remove coating of varnish.

So, if you've got a motor like this, would be best to unsolder the connector first, and then solder the new connector to the motor leads.
